What Are The Odds Of Hammond And May Returning To Top Gear Without Clarkson?

Bookmakers will gladly take your bets.

As the future of Top Gear is still being decided, we’ve just now learned that Richard Hammond and James May have wrapped up filming a few sequences that previously weren’t completed due to Clarkson’s suspension. According to the UK’s Telegraph, the two co-hosts completed scenes at the show’s test track at Dunsfold last week. Jeremy Clarkson, obviously, was not involved. While that was happening, speculation began to mount about a supposed offer the BBC has out to Hammond and May:

1 million pounds a year to continue as Top Gear hosts, while the third personality will be a different guest host each week. Again, that’s a rumor that neither side is confirming. We’ve also heard that our favorite trio could jump ship together to another network for an all-new show. So what will ultimately happen? Bookmakers, such as William Hill, "were offering 5/1 for them to return to another series of Top Gear, but following news of the sums that have been offered to the pair, we have slashed the odds to 5/4."
